The Power of Forgiveness I was moved by a powerful story of forgiveness that I found on Donald Miller’s Storyline blog. Justin Zoradi writes, “The gospel of forgiveness isn’t a high calling for the heroic individual, or a counter-cultural description of heavenly perfection. It is a principle central to the gospel itself – the very […]

Barriers to Conversation

March 14, 2013

As Christians we are expected to engage people in conversation. God has designed us to dwell in community just as he dwells in community (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). From the beginning God said it was not good for man to be alone. God gave us the institution of marriage and created families. Families are […]

David Lipscomb on the Qualifications of Elders

March 11, 2013

The Holy Spirit has described the qualifications of elders in the first letter to Timothy and in that to Titus. None are perfect in their character. So none will have in perfection these qualifications laid down – that is, all will possess them in a human way. When the Holy Spirit requires qualifications, he specifies them as they […]

A Prayer by George MacDonald

March 8, 2013

Thy will be done. I yield up everything. The hairs I made not, thou art numbering. Thou art my life – I the brook, thou the spring. Because thine eyes are open, I can see; Because thou art thyself, tis therefore I am me.

Follow People Who Make You Better There are certain people I enjoy following on social media. These individuals often post and share things that encourage and inspire me to be a better Christian.

Keys to Writing a Good Sermon

March 6, 2013

There is an art to preaching. The preacher has the task of taking an ancient text and creating a message that is relevant to a modern audience. This is not an easy thing to do. It is not good enough to stand in front of the people of God, read a passage, and then proclaim […]

A Prayer by William Wilberforce

March 2, 2013

  Bless those who labour in thy word and doctrine. May they be the honoured instruments of turning many from sin to righteousness, that so we may not in this highly-favoured land have a name to live while we are dead, and have the form of godliness without the power. We pray to thee for […]

Here are some links, resources, stories, etc. that I have found helpful. A Preacher Goes to Sunday School Check out this great post from my friend Shane Alexander entitled Teaching Children at Church. It is an interesting read about a minister who decides to give up his regular adult Bible class and teach the younger […]

Commanded to Encourage

February 28, 2013

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Heb. 10:24-25) This passage is probably most famous for […]

Choices and Consequences

February 28, 2013

All of our choices have consequences. If I choose to touch a hot stove, then I will burn myself. If I choose to exercise and eat better, then I will be healthier. We sometimes make the mistake of thinking that consequences are only bad. We tend to use the word consequence in this way, but […]
